!Women Art Revolution

September 28, 20177:00 pmto9:00 pm


!Women Art Revolution elaborates the relationship of the Feminist Art Movement to the 1960s anti-war and civil rights movements and explains how historical events, such as the all-male protest exhibition against the invasion of Cambodia, sparked the first of many feminist actions against major cultural institutions. The film details major developments in women’s art of the 1970s, including the first feminist art education programs, political organizations and protests, alternative art spaces such as the A.I.R. Gallery and Franklin Furnace in New York and the Los Angeles Women’s Building, publications such as Chrysalis and Heresies, and landmark exhibitions, performances, and installations of public art that changed the entire direction of art.

She creates experiences, objects, images, and language in response to cultural, historical, and structural violence against feminine subjects.” She was recently an artist-in-residence at the Everson Museum and was prominently in their exhibition Seen and Heard: An Active Commemoration of Women’s Suffrage.
